Our highly skilled personnel plan and perform extensive maintenance events we call “Turnarounds,” during which we inspect, clean, and perform important maintenance on refinery equipment. Turnarounds require process units to be shut down and opened for inspection and work, which supports safe, reliable, continuous operation to provide the cleaner-burning transportation fuels our society relies on daily.
Our next Turnaround event is scheduled to begin in early January and last about 45-days. The work will be executed on both day and night shifts, with approximately 400-additional contract workers per shift, mostly affiliated with local Building and Construction Trade Unions, for a total that could reach 800 skilled contractors.
During this time, we will make every effort to minimize noise and light impacts during evening hours and overnight. You may notice increased traffic along West 190th Street during worker shift changes between 4:30/5 a.m. and again from 4:30 to 5 p.m.). A Torrance Police Department officer will be available to assist with traffic control.
